Albert Joosse (PhD, Utrecht 2011) is a postdoc at the Philosophy Department of the University of Utrecht. He was a postdoc at the University of Freiburg (Germany) from 2011-14 and a visiting scholar at the University of Pennsylvania in 2014-15. He is particularly interested in ancient epistemology and ethics.

His current research project, supported through the Veni scheme of NWO, concerns the ancient reception of the First Alcibiades. This Platonic dialogue portrays Socrates' attempts to convince the young Alcibiades to know himself and to pursue philosophy. By studying ancient philosophical engagements with this text, the project will advance our understanding of ancient educational thought and philosophical anthropology.

Socratic educations: the ancient reception of the Alcibiades Maior 01-09-2014 tot 14-04-2018
Algemene projectbeschrijving

What is good education? This project will investigate Greco-Roman thought about this question through the interpretative history of the Platonic dialogue Alcibiades. Here Socrates, the exemplary philosopher, teaches Alcibiades, the brilliant traitor. The text therefore offers later readers an inspiring example as well as a challenge: what if things go wrong?
